My family, all very great cooks. One grandmother taught cooking for a living, the other had 18 children so she learned a thing or two.... my dad, my mom, my brother, great cooks. I learned enough from them to be able to cook pretty good food but can't be bothered. The shame of my family I am. Well that's one reason I am anyway....

like, i made french onion soup a couple months ago and i was fucking amazed that i did it.

really, though, i credit it to the recipe itself. if the recipe is well written and you've got the right kitchenware, it's pretty hard to fuck up a dish. for everyday things, i can improvise a dish pretty easily with stuff around the house. it just depends on if i'm wanting soup, pasta, stir fry, whatever.

i can cook a few things quite well. pizza making has become a hobby of mine over the past six months or so. dough from scratch, 00 flour cut with AP, three day cold ferment in the fridge. i'll make my own sauce sometimes with san marzano's, but they are retardedly expensive. i hand stretch the dough in the air, but don't toss it because its mostly for show, and gets flour all over my condo.

i'll make fresh pasta from scratch sometimes, but it really is a lot of work.

I've become pretty good at asian food. my fried noodles/rice/veg don't taste like a white person made them anymore. can do a decent curry as well.

my strengths are in mexican, vegan, and comfort food. my mac and cheese is legend. can make a perfect omelette.

i'm not an amazing cook but i like what i cook and other people like what i cook and i can cook many different things. so that's good.

i've recently grown out of favor from the hotter, red curries and moved toward the more flavorful yellow curries. less tomato and more mango or coconut. lately have been having a showdown between korma and mango curry to see which i like more.

pretty much. that's the cool thing. make it to your mood. I've learned to make sambals as well, then i use that to fry the rice in. less oil. healthier. tasty as fuck. i think my new favorite thing is fried noodles. another endless options dish and so simple once you get it down.

i've never been crazy about yellow or green curries. some are nice but I'm down for masala and coconut most of the time.

i haven't moved to noodles yet but am looking to soon. masala and jalfreezi are great don't get me wrong but i'm definitely more of a korma/mango/yellow/green man myself.

it probably has more to do with my vegetable choices than anything. but yea i've been eating variations of this dish daily for almost half a year now and haven't grown sick of it in the slightest. soo many veggies and soo many sauces to choose from.

laksa and tom kar ftw

I'm a total home cook - I can follow more complicated recipes and I'm pretty intuitive in the kitchen because I started young. One of the benefits of being the oldest child and only daughter, in a family where both parents have undiagnosed, untreated mental health issues. If I wanted my family to sit down together and eat a dinner other than ramen noodles, there were nights when I had to make it myself. When I was 11 I started making a lot of mac and cheese, pumpkin soup, and frittata - and fruit crumble for dessert. I cooked everything from scratch because I didn't know there was another way - my parents both liked fairly unprocessed food. Then my family would laugh at me and criticise whatever I'd made, so I have crippling anxiety about cooking for other people.

I still make a lot of pumpkin soup. Trying to be gluten free because i get really bad bloating if I eat it.

i'm pretty sure it's not, because gordon ramsay serves a lot of it and although he's entertaining he seems like a pretty terrible cook
